Both singers lightheartedly expressed discontent over their past stringent diet restrictions which prohibited the two from eating any food that they so desired.
When MC Kim Sung Joo asked Key whether there were any instances during his trainee days that made him dejected because he wasn't allowed to eat certain foods, the Key answered, "My body is actually not naturally slim. I'm the type to immediately gain weight. So the company allowed members who are naturally slim like Taemin and Jonghyun to eat whatever they want. While they would order things like Chicken Katsu and Tonkatsu, Onew and I ate things like fish cakes and dwenjang jiigae [soybean stew]. I really really wanted to eat that Chicken Katsu and Tonkatsu."
BoA related all too well to Key's story and told everyone on the show about a past company outing for trainees where only she wasn't allowed to eat. She told the MC panel, "All the trainees were taken out to a restaurant to be treated one time and while all the other trainees like Jang Na Ra and Fly to the Sky were ordering stuff like rib eye and fried rice, I was told 'Don't eat.' At a young age, I was hurt by such a comment."
Fortunately, the singer's sad story had a happy ending as she told everyone, "After debut, when I was making a lot of money with 'No. 1,' I went back to the restaurant and ate four plates of food all by myself," making the studio ring with laughter at her cute rebellious act.
